Hand-printed Cyanotype 100% Silk Scarf 'Vintage Flying Machines'

X

Description

This is a silk scarf that would be a talking point when you wear it; slightly quirky with a touch of humour and at the same time soft and elegant. I have used original illustrations of vintage flying machines as stencils, then hand-printed it, using the 'Blueprint' photographic process (Cyanotype). The result is a beautiful 'Prussian Blue' colour. I am happy to take commissions for a Cyanotype silk scarf if you would like more of them, or ones with a different design.


How this was made

The Cyanotype process is a 19th Century photographic process that uses iron salts and sunshine to create a beautiful Prussian Blue colour; it is the original 'blueprint'. In the 1800s, botanist Anna Atkins was the first person to use photographs to illustrate a book by using Cyanotypes and this is the same process that I use today!
A 100% hand-rolled silk scarf, 28cm x 114cm and hand-washable - but go very gently.
